HLC-148 Yes Virginia, There is a Resistance

Welcome to this special edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast – because, well, because, …, because, because, because, because, becaaaauuuuse – because we wanted to do more to fill the world with silly podcasts.

In this special edition we talk about three topics. First, what happened in Virginia? Was it the repudiation of Trumpism? Was it rather the repudiation of NeverTrumpism? Is there any meaningful justification for the continued existence in the pundit sphere of Evan McMullin, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin, Bret Stephens, etc, etc, etc??? Mike tries his hardest to advance the “dignity in the White House”/”the (Grand Old) Party is better off out of power than being trodden upon by Trump” arguments of the McMullin holdouts amongst our listeners. We know you are out there. I won’t go as far as to say that we feel your pain.

Topic 2, voter suppression. The left, in this case represented by Missouri Democrat and podcaster Jason Kantor, thinks that voter ID laws are a solution in search of a problem. Actually, what they think is that voter ID laws are simply a brazen attempt at suppressing the votes of poor people and minorities and especially Democrats. Where are they going wrong?

Finally, wither Roy Moore from here? Can he stave off electoral collapse by claiming that the accusations of sexual misconduct 30+ years ago are nothing more than a big lie?

We have shower thoughts! We have a hidden gem…and this one is pretty well hidden. The Mills Brothers singing “Paper Doll.”
